The diamond clarity chart and Diamond education
Clarity determines price because stones with fewer flaws are rarer. Some flaws you can see and some you cannot see with the naked eye.
Color- the most expensive diamonds are the ones that are pure white. As soon as they take on a little tint of yellow, the less expensive they become. Most people prefer white diamonds if they can afford them. If you want a diamond that does not show any yellow you should stay above the letter “J” on the GIA gradingscale.com
Carat- larger diamonds are more costly but, remember that size is not everything. Just get what you can afford and remember that the meaning the diamond holds for you is much more important than whether or not it is going to impress somebody for its magnitude.
